Packers already extended Mike McCarthy's contract through 2019 season

Reports: Packers part ways with Dom Capers, defensive coaches

Green Bay missed the playoffs this season for the first time since 2009, finishing with a (7-9) record and 3rd place in the NFC North. It appears the Packers wanted to keep the deal under wraps until the offseason.

Even with kicking General Manager Ted Thompson upstairs after 14 years, the Packers took a step toward creating some organizational stability, and they did it quietly.




More importantly, the one-year extension ensures McCarthy won't go into next season as a lame duck coach. Schneider is a Wisconsin native and has previously worked in the Packers organization on two other occasions.

Coach Mike McCarthy received a one-year contract extension during this past season, sources told ESPN. McCarthy does have a Super Bowl win, as he and the Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers back in 2010. Thompson has been the GM since 2005 when he made Aaron Rodgers his first pick as the head man. Beginning with the son of Thompson's mentor, Ron Wolf. Murphy informed the committee on Monday that the team would conduct a search for a new GM. He served as Seattle's vice president of football operations until 2005, when former Packers president Bob Harlan hired him as the Packers general manager. As is custom, the team will reportedly review several internal candidates.
